Volunteers are instrumental for the success of this event. In 2022, we had 150 volunteers, that gave of their time to help with program. That translated to 800+ hours of time donated to VAC that we would otherwise have to hire individuals to help.
Volunteers help collect gifts from sponsor's vehicles, organize, and pack the gifts for the families during collection days. Distribution days are just that, volunteers take the shopping carts full of gifts out to the families and help load their cars. This is often the most rewarding part of the program. The participants are so very grateful of our communities generosity.
